Family Time and Changes Galore | Weekly Snapshot

There has been so much going on over here and so much changing soon. I wish I could say I was reading a lot, but it's feeling like a luxury at the moment. 

Family visitLast week, we had my husband's brother and his wife drive down from Boston and stay with us for the week. It had been months since we enjoyed anyone's close companionship for that long so we all enjoyed the time together. We were very sad to say our goodbyes. I hope we can all return to the pre-March era soon. 
While they were here, we celebrated the girl's birthday. (I feel like I have been talking about birthdays on this blog for the past many weeks but we are done for the year!

Read-Along: Lord of the Rings

LOTR readalong

I LOVE the LOTR series! To this day, they remain my favorite books (and movies) of all time! I usually never like movies based on books, but LOTR is an exception. Eva @ A Striped Armchair, Maree @ Just Add Books, Teresa @ Shelf Loveand the Clare @ The Literary Omnivore are hosting a read-along for the LOTR series and I am excited to join in. I have actually been planning to re-read the LOTR books this year, and am eager to discuss this series with my fellow readers.

This read-along runs from January 2010 till April, and covers the following books:

* January: The Hobbit
* February: The Fellowship of the Ring
* March: The Two Towers here
* April: The Return of the King

I'm glad I am joining as well!! I will be reading The Hobbit as well, which is the only one of the four that I haven't previously read. But I will start it only after Jan 13th, since right now, I am on vacation and my book is sitting on my shelf at home.

I'm glad you're reading The Hobbit. :) It's pretty short (less than 300 pgs in my edition) and stylistically a lot simpler than LOTR, so I doubt you'll have a problem catching up.
